Aimed at 8-14 year olds, Mother Owl books are written in the form of a rhyme, to communicate the basic ideas. A child may choose to read only the poem, or have it read aloud to them by a teacher or parent. When further explanation is required, or asked for, the panel alongside provides facts, diagrams and definitions of important words. The concepts are kept simple, and to-the point. Photographs and illustrations add to the visual appeal of a book designed to educate children about important topics.
